Coming Soon: Fall St. Louis Loft Tour 2005
The last loft tour in May was so awesome that I don't want to get my expectations up too high. I've only heard of one building that will be "unveiled" at this event as opposed to 4 at the last one. I plan on doing more homework on this topic in the next few weeks.
There will probably be a buzz about the Ventana. They have just started working with a realtor to help sales. Probably a good move. It takes a lot of creative thinking to walk in to an unfinished space though and see your new home. Some buildings have a certain amount of character even in the unfinished stages, I'm not sure that the Arts & Crafts building has it with 9' concrete ceilings and limited exposed brick. The windows sizes are great though. I'm sure that the luxury build out will be a great addition to the downtown west neighborhood.
To the east, the Dorsa lofts, by Pyramid, will be opening that day. My feelings are public knowledge on that building. It just has a unique look and a great location. Also being a builder with substantial loft experience. I have several clients that are excited about that building too. We'll see what they have to offer in the way of pricing and amenities.
